Nebraska Low Income Weatherization Assistance Program


December 19, 2018

Overview

Weatherization is making homes more energy efficient. Weatherization of a home typically involves the installation of attic, wall and floor insulation and sealing holes and cracks with caulking, weather-stripping and other types of materials. In addition, all furnaces, cooking stoves, and water heaters receive a safety inspection. Weatherization services do not include roof replacement, siding repairs or replacement windows. An estimated 55,000 Nebraska households are eligible for weatherization assistance services. Preference is given to persons over 60, persons with disabilities, and families with children under six.
